Moby Dick quotes

Starbuck: Sir, I must request that you put your foreign boys to work. Them sitting idle is affecting the morale. Did you not hear me, Captain?
Captain Ahab: They are not here as shipkeepers, Mr. Starbuck, or for any other purpose. They are here to find and slay the white whale.

Ishmael: What the devil's the matter with you?
Queequeg: Ishmael no want go on ship with Queequeg?
Ishmael: No. I mean, yes, of course I do. But you would be better suited to pick out a whaler that's suited for both of us, not I, and I shall certainly not take your money. Queequeg, I fear I must make a confession. I used to be a schoolteacher. Do you know what that is?
Queequeg: Aye. Missionary.
Ishmael: No. Well, not exactly. What I'm trying to say is that I've never jumped a spar in my life.
Queequeg: Ishmael no sailor?
Ishmael: Aye. Me no sailor. It's just that I have this burning desire to go to sea.
Queequeg: Me Ojo savvy. Ishmael pick ship. Ishmael pick ship.

Queequeg: I killee!
Peter Coffin: Now, Queequeg, stop that!
Ishmael: Why didn't you tell me that this harpooner I'd be sharing a bed with is a cannibal, for God's sake?
Peter Coffin: Now, listen to me, Queequeg. You savvy me, I savvy you. This lad sleep here in this bed with you. You savvy?
Queequeg: Me savvy plenty.

Captain Ahab: Aye, harpoons do like stuck in him like so many corkscrews. Aye, his spout is big, like Nantucket wheat. Aye, by death and devils, the white whale is Moby-di**, if Moby-di** you see!
Starbuck: Captain Ahab, was it not Moby-di** that cut off thy leg?
Captain Ahab: Aye, Mr. Starbuck. Aye, my hearties all. It was Moby-di** that dismantled me, that reaped off my leg like a mower a blade of grass and left me with this dead stump I stand on. For forever and a day I shall chase that white whale.

Peter Coffin: You a commadore, then, or a cook?
Ishmael: No, a simple sailor, jumping from spar to spar like a grasshopper in a May meadow. Very much like a slave. But who isn't a slave? Tell me that.
Peter Coffin: I suppose you're going whaling, then?
Ishmael: Aye. Would you be having a room for a simple sailor, Mr. Coffin?
Peter Coffin: Aye, if you've no objection to sharing a blanket with a simple harpooner.

Queequeg: Queequeg be sailor no more.
Captain Ahab: What is this, harpooner?
Queequeg: You be bad magic!
Captain Ahab: Away from me!
Queequeg: Queequeg harpoon for you no more!

Starbuck: What about the boy, sir?
Captain Ahab: Boy? What boy?
Starbuck: Pip, sir. He's lost at sea.
Captain Ahab: The tamborine boy? What the devil was he doing in your boat, Mr. Starbuck?
Starbuck: He stowed away, sir, where he wasn't supposed to be. He's a kind-hearted, jolly little boy, sir. I'm afraid we've lost him.
Queequeg: Me go find Pip! If Pip be dead, it be bad magic!
